Great Childhood Memories.
I love re-watching the Adventures of Robin Hood. I remember sitting in front of a ten inch black and white television and watching the series as a kid.
I particularly enjoyed this episode because it features the late Patrick Troughton as cousin William. Did you know that Patrick Troughton was the first actor to play the part of Robin Hood on British Television? This was long before he went on to become known as one of the best Doctor Whos. It is great to be able to relive my childhood through the archive.
In this slightly-different to usual episode, Marian has a dream about her Cousin and Robin Hood, and is worried that it might turn out true. Sound and Picture are good. I hope more end up being uploaded.
Anyway, the dream turns out to be partly true, with the her cousin capturing Robin and trying to take him to be executed. Marian manages to get Robin saved in the end.
